Week in Review: March 18 to March 24

A look at the top stories in Massapequa this week.

It was a week where we discussed refinancing, reorganization, redistricting and re-election. 

There was a lot of change in the air, except in Massapequa Park, and Patch was on hand to let you know about it.

Here's a look back: 

We opened the week by taking a look at the Massapequa School District where officials announced the elimination of 29 teaching jobs. They also announced anounced an administrative reorganization in which will result in the elimination of three jobs. 

The Long Island Congressional delegation will take on a new look after a three-judge federal court panel approved a new district map that eliminates one Long Island seat.  , R-Seaford, who currently represents the 3rd District which streches north to south from shore to shore, will likely run in the new 3rd District which will be based on the south shore.

The Village Board in Massapequa Park will remain unchanged with the re-election of Deputy Mayor Jeffrey Pravato and Trustee Teresa Spinosa. Both will be serving their sixth term.

The foreclosure crisis hit home in Massapequa as hit home as played host to a Foreclosure Prevention Center. Residents learned about refinancing their mortgage and fighting predatory lenders.

Finally, we asked you where there were pothole problems in Massapequa, and you responded by telling us about problems on Brooklyn Avenue. We we took a look and talked to town officials.

It appears Rep. Pete King is being "edged out", not for speaking his peace on the infiltrators in our neighborhoods. Ofcourse, not.
